YA Books Christmas Present Ideas (That Aren’t Hunger Games)

Merry Christmas GIFs | Tenor

Hey everyone! As it’s basically Christmas, I thought I’d share some Young Adult books that would make great Christmas presents for young people. I’m a teen, and I have to admit I’d prefer not to have an old copy of your favourite book when you were ten. Because, whilst I’m sure you enjoyed it… I might not. Times change and if you’re looking for a book for a teen this Christmas, I’d recommend not buying books that are too young for them, ie the characters are younger than the person you’re buying it for. Obviously, it isn’t always the case that younger MC means a younger age category (THE EXORCIST) but it can sometimes feel like you and the fact you read older books aren’t not being taken seriously (but stay in an appropriate age category!).

I also tried out some book photography for the first time. let me know if you have any tips on how to photograph books… because I spent about half an hour trying to find some decent lighting that didn’t show all the creases in the spines. Because I’ve read these books a lot. Because I really enjoyed them! And anyone you’re buying YA books for this Christmas will as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you read amy of these? Got any other YA books that would make great presents, or want to let me know what books you want for Christmas? let me know in the comments!

Published by Hundreds&Thousands

Iโ€™m a teenager (and Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teen romance (itโ€™s ironic I know but you canโ€™t really go wrong with 'Eleanor and Park'). And one day, I decided to try and share some of my opinions on some great โ€“ and not so great โ€“ books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it; I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but Iโ€™m not quite up to that. Yet.

  1. I am 26 and still want to read middle grade books. When I was a college student, I found myself reading Land of Stories, Avalon, and Sister’s Grimm. I am actually asking for a middle grade book for Christmas- I want to start the Nevermoor series

    For classics- one of the best places to start is A Christmas Carol- short book and one of the best classics

    1. I loved land of stories when I was a kid! Only recently I found out that kurt from glee wrote them – I always thought it was just a big coincidence that they had the same name. And looked the same…
